Attention: That Bot-Written Olive Garden Ad Is Actually A Meme

We've seen bot-generated chapters of Harry Potter and Seinfeld episodes, so when we first saw Keaton Patti's bot-written Olive Garden commercial, we didn't bat an eye. The dialogue is hilariously and perfectly off, it's so bad it seems real. Alas, some (many) things on the internet are just too good to be true, and our friends at Gizmodo made us meme freaks feel pretty frickin' dumb.

It turns out that Mr. Patti, a writer who has contributed to the New Yorker, and, tellingly, The Onion, has written these fake masterpieces before. He's not the only one. The meme is apparently abundant on Twitter. The fact that even bigger media outlets fell for us makes it a little better, but we still have to hand it to these memers for their dedication and creativity.

Waluigi Got Shafted By Super Smash Bros And Memers Are PISSED

Can't Nintendo throw Waluigi and his fans a bone? The trailer for Super Smash Bros Ultimate, despite its blaring claim that "Everyone is Here" is missing one important absence - that of the purple-clad villain-version of Luigi. This absence caused an uproar on Twitter, a tsunami of memes on Reddit, and even a dramatic piece from The Washington Post.

Waluigi is one of the most meme-able characters in the Nintendo universe (check out this entry from Know Your Meme) so it's no surprise that the community has chosen to rebel by flooding Reddit's r/dankmemes community with memes of the weirdly lovable character. We've rounded up some of their best work, as well as Twitter's most mournful reactions so that you, too, can understand this unforgivable injustice.

Memers Are Freaking Over Proposed EU Law That Might Ban Memes

For years memers have been focused on Star Wars' Order 66, but now they're more concerned about a real-life copyright law that is endangering their meme-ing freedom. Article 13 of the proposed EU copyright overhaul threatens many forms of user-generated content. The article is trying for much harsher regulation for copyrighted content - which will directly affect any memes that use stock photos or images from movies or television shows. 

The threat is definitely being felt in Reddit's meme communities, especially the oft-offensive r/dankmemes subreddit. How do memers respond to threats on their livelihood? By making memes, of course. Here are some of our favorites - but there are sure to be many, many more in the days to come. As dedicated believers in our freedom to meme, we really hope this article doesn't become a reality.
